KARDINAL OFFISHALL Not 4 Sale
This Canadian rapper is of Jamaican descent, and he brings plenty of island flavor to his impressive debut. Highlights include the Rihanna-assisted "Numba 1 (Tide Is High)" and "Dangerous," a Top 10 hit with Akon.

LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM Gift of Screws
On one of the standouts of his fifth solo outing, the Fleetwood Macster sings about waiting for "The Right Place to Fade." But as this enchanting disc demonstrates, Buckingham is hardly ready to fade from the picture.

KIMYA DAWSON AND FRIENDS Alphabutt
Dawson's alt-folk ditties were brought to a wider audience on the Juno soundtrack. Her quirky sensibilities add a little grown-up fun to this kids' disc when singing about things like farting in the tub.

JOSH HOGE Everything She Was
There's nothing on Hoge's debut that hasn't been done before—and better—by other soulful white boys like Justin Timberlake, John Mayer and Robin Thicke. Still, you may find cuts like "Stay Away" hard to resist.
